    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits! Night shift not good on the family life. Training limited for store clerks. Your partner can make or break you, depends on who you are working with each night. There are some awesome people there to work with and some not so awesome. Overall a good experience, I was there four years and learned a lot from fellow workers.

    Cons

    No where to move up. Good time off, holidays are tough to work around because everyone wants to be off before and after a holiday. Bombardier is a 7 day, 24 hour facility, so that means you could work on a major holiday if a plane is pushing, you will not know if you are going to have off up until the last minute in some cases. Hard to plan a life with all that going on. Not a whole lot of information being shared, to many to do lists being passed down to night shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If we really have a say in what direction we are going, why not ask what we think and how we should get there since we are the ones doing the job. We could give you real time answers instead of just someone sitting behind a desk who does not have a clue as to what the job really entails. Make everyone be a team player or they need to go, could be an awesome place to work if everyone stepped up and did their fair share.

    Pros

    Abundant opportunities for growth and change
    Opportunities for advancement (too a degree)

    Cons

    HR is limited in selecting the right people to join and/or lead us
    Poor / slow marketing, product development

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    we need to become humble and hungry again, as we were in the 1990s... we are too arrogant to see how we ourselves have contributed tot he state we are in today.

    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great company with many great people. The projects are really interesting. Good benefits as well : you start with 3 weeks of vacation plus more benefits.

    Cons

    IT is a little rusty and could be a little more organized. Teams are using several old ad-hoc custom-made software. Newer airplane projects look better organized though and even use robots for assembly.

    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities at Bombardier Aerospace if you lookout for them. I ended up in the IT department and it was big enough to even move within it. Its big size allows to make many friends and contacts.

    Cons

    Some projects are very heavy: in particular when submitting them at first to get approval. Aerospace has its ups and down: get ready to go through both hiring and downsizing periods.

    Pros

    Good working conditions and benefit. Good support from immediate management, good learning environment, friendly workers. In general, a very good place to work at.

    Cons

    Sometime too bureaucratic, need to follow procedure, getting other department to do their part of the job before you can do your part is sometime challenging, deadlines are sometime not well thought out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For upper management to listen to the real time, it needs to take to get a job done.

    I have been working at Bombardier Aerospace part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Large company that has solid training procedures in place. Not a lot of micro managing occurred within my group which was nice. Never worried about going to superiors with questions.

    Cons

    Sometimes get lost in the shuffle since company is so vast. Not a lot of time was available from upper management for guidance at times. Although there is a instant messaging system in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a tad more available.

    Culturally pretty good but supervisors are average

    I worked at Bombardier Aerospace

    Pros

    Benefits are 2nd to none. Training is non-existant due to budget cuts. Flex time is great and christamss vacations are in addition to vacations.

    Cons

    Performance evaluations are done by at best average supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to start a management school and train these guys.
